Marcus Rashford: Social media makes racism too easy

Marcus Rashford says racism is made by media platforms that are societal’easy’ and urged them to do more to tackle the internet matter.
England and the Manchester United has been one of lots of players mistreated in recent weeks, after missing a penalty during United’s 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace exposed to racist tweets moments.
Rashford considers the way to solve the challenge is simple – making sure users are only allowed one account per platform.
“For me personally, it is too simple to do whatever you prefer on the web,” Rashford said before England’s European Qualifier from Bulgaria.
“Any people now could go on and make accounts and write what we want under anyone’s posts and nobody would ever understand.
“The remedy is simple to work out – if you had to show identification to make an account which means everyone can only have one account.
“For me personally, there’s thousands of people who use my name on social networking and they can write what they like.”
“But people are speaking out and people are listening so hopefully we could put it right.”
In an attempt Twitter are currently proposing to monitor the reports for 50 footballers – something Rashford is essential of.
“That does not alter anything, the amount of accounts out there is ridiculous – a lot of them are not doing it out of their accounts, they are all dummy accounts,” Rashford added.
“To be truthful, though it proceeds people will only begin to come off the programs when it they end up doing much more bad than good”
This week, Chris Powell was appointed as a coach in the England set-up and Southgate thinks it is important to provide those from ethnic minorities opportunities.
On the appointment of the former Charlton, both Huddersfield and Southend manager:”We’re trying to be in the forefront of providing chances to coaches from minority cultural groups and Chris is an good example of a person who’s fully capable, has good experience for a manager and clearly experience of worldwide football – he has really worked with a number of the players in our group when he turned into a club manager.
“So, I’m hoping it’s going to become a brilliant insight for him into how we operate. He will be able to attract.
“We hope to create role models that young people are able to aspire to. That they could see there is opportunity, they can observe that a number of the hurdles they feel are there, have now been broken down. We think that’s a really strong and important message.”
